Other views: Know how that chicken got to your table?

… covering chickens — which account for 96% of the animals slaughtered — focus on food safety, not cruelty. If a chicken is scalded to death in the production process, government inspectors won’t necessarily intervene. About 700,000 birds — albeit a tiny fraction of the nearly 9 billion slaughtered — died by scalding in 2013. None of this is necessary. Alternatives exist to kill chickens with less distress and suffering. Britain and parts of Europe use a system that puts them to sleep …

A large body of evidence suggests vegetarians enjoy lower rates of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and hypertension.

… eater, thus, the problem. While waiting for Rick to come home from work, I turned to the Internet to try to understand the concept of vegetarianism. I know that one of my “adopted” daughters is a vegetarian, and she is also a very good veterinarian. She is philosophically opposed to inflicting pain and death on any species capable of feeling pain. I so respect her decision, and when she visits, I make a special effort to understand and honor her dietary decision. Until today, I had never …

Avoid cruelty, go vegetarian | The Border Mail

… employee was also shown twisting the necks of animals. In recent years undercover footage shot in foreign abattoirs has revealed that the Australian live animal export trade has been responsible for sending many cattle and sheep to a grisly and prolonged death full of suffering.

LETTER: For health’s sake, go vegetarian in 2015

It’s time for New Year’s resolutions, particularly those about our health. Although gun violence remains the leading cause of death among young people, our most dangerous weapon is still our fork. Forty-five times as many people die of chronic diseases linked to a diet containing animal products, sugar, and salt. Hardly a month goes by without another study linking consumption of animal products with obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. No …

Being a teen vegetarian doesn’t limit options – Entertainment & Life – The State Journal-Register – Springfield, IL

Up until three months ago, I was a total carnivore. I loved cheeseburgers, bacon, steak and virtually all other types of meat. But one day my family drove by a truck full of chickens and my dad joked, “They think they are taking a field trip, but it’s off to the slaughterhouse.” It just hit me. I don’t know why, but it really bothered me. Don’t you wonder what an animal feels when being annihilated or “fed to death?” It’s been shown in numerous studies and documentaries that …

Right now, that isn’t happening for at least a billion people out of the 7 billion presently inhabiting Earth, and it is expected to get worse over the next years.

I respect your opinion and moral desire to do what you believe is right. I …
